before you think that is the en of the world, and the spending cuts, over 10 years, hit us hard in two weeks, i'm here to tell you, relax, sometimes recognizing a bad rape for what it is, -- a bad relationship for what it is, is a good thing. and republicans risking more spending cuts could be a good thing, bring on this sequestration thing, weadock worse, i think we are. to ford oconnelly, on whether the washington disconnecttion could be good. >> i think it is good, john bain are playing hard to get on valentine's day, saying democrats and senate can negotiateo with president obama, then kick it over to the house,, i'm done being the guy who gets blamed for everyone. that is a good aproach for him, it gives democrats a responsible for not having a budget, doing other things, but also gives the republican party unitty, which s something we've not seen for last couple years. neil: something has changed, christmastime they wanted to postpone the sequestration cuts that was a nightmare. for republicans as well as democrats, republicans more so because of the defense cuts. but now they se
